Albert is cutting wood.. He Is Less Effeminate..
( Full Film! ) Join us now as we're presented to what appears to be the TV reality show 'Big Brother' only with socially maladjusted teenage boys. Activity Group Therapy, which, yes, I had to participate in, when I was a kid, is somwhat puzzingly presented here, as total agression and mischief is seen as progress. One kid starts a fire in the kitchen during the latter groups, and the kids join in, watching it burn, but the counsellour watching the group will not intervene until 'only neccessary'. When will that be? Soon, the kids calm down after the first initial outbursts, the psychiatrists see this as progress. I see this as the beginning of becoming a sociopath.
